Frame number SR1135.14.

Here's what Ross told me about this one:

Looks like you got yourself one of the original 100 La Raza frames built in 1993, the 14th to be exact. The intention back then was to do a single run of 100 frames....we had lots of Salsa fans asking for a Salsa road frame, but were quite sure a sloping top tube road frame wouldn't exactly be a hit in the general market (shows how much I knew).

I'm glad you finally got yourself a La Raza and hope you enjoy it for many
years to come. If you're ever in the San Francisco area, c'mon by for a
visit.

All the best,
Ross Shafer

heres my hack bike . I bought the frame off ebay for a few pounds . Really like the ride. Its starting to rust from the inside out at the lugs so I'll have to strip it shortly.
It has a BC sticker Brixton Cycles & workers co-operative .
Nice bit of recycling . Anyone else have a bike recycled through BC ?
